Latest News
The Unlimited National Bangers take centre stage at Tullyroan Oval this, Sunday October 24th, when the prestigious Shamwreck 2021 event takes place. Usually held annually in Spring, the event has found a new date towards the end of this season due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Shamwreck entry features a fantastic list of top National Banger drivers. Amongst the contenders will be local favourite Leonard Dunn from Donemana and he always excels in the big events. Another hot prospect will be former World Champion Steven Bolton from Ballymoney, as he chases the elusive Shamwreck win for the first time. Coleraine’s Kieran McIvor is a former winner of the title, and he too will relish the prospect of grabbing another big victory. As always the first aim for any driver chasing the win will be to avoid the carnage on track, and the fast Tullyroan bowl is certain to produce some fantastic action.

Meath racer Mike Flaherty is the current points champion on the local raceways and he will be chasing a record breaking third Shamwreck victory having won the big race in both 2011 and 2018. Co Armagh racers Davy Patton and Jonny Murdock are also sure to entertain and have some great tin on display too. Lisburn based father and son duo Rodney and Chris Herron will be amongst others hoping to smash and crash their way to a top placing.

There is a full programme of full contact Banger racing during the day for the Shamwreck title, with the final race of the afternoon being the last car moving Destruction Derby for the James Smith Memorial Trophy, in memory of the respected former racer.

Also in action will be the explosive 1300 Stock Cars chasing their Tullyroan Challenge Cup where recent form men Thomas McCrory and Chris Hamill will face stiff opposition from a whole host of locals as well as English visitor Jacob Roff.

The rapid 2.0 Hot Rods will also be in action, as the non-contact machines race at breakneck speed around the oval. Irish Champion Adam Best and NI Points Champion Drew McKeown will be ones to watch as well as Scottish Champion Jason Secker who will be making the trip across the Irish Sea for the meeting.

The single-seater Superstox will also be in action, with another full grid and exciting racing in prospect. Portadown’s Lee Davison and Aughnacloy ace Kyle Beattie will be hoping for some good results on their home circuit, with recent recruits to the formula, Curtis Greer and Craig McConnell, others capable of grabbing the silverware.

The first green flag of the day drops at 1pm.

Dean Catherwood was a gallant runner up ahead of Samuel Murphy.

In the first regrading of the 2021/22 Autoweld NI Points Championship for 1300 Stock Cars, form man Thomas McCrory sets the early pace and with it earns a rise to the Superstar grade. Chris Hamill and Gareth Halliday are next up in the standings.

Despite horrendous conditions at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, the drivers put on a fantastic show for the hardy race fans who braved the elements. Ballinderry’s Jonny Cardwell added the Irish Stock Rods Championship to the British title he won earlier in the season with a hard fought win, whilst Dungannon’s National Champion Derek Martin scored a heat and final double in the National Hot Rods. Other feature race wins fell to Portadown’s World Champion Nigel Jackson (Lightning Rods), Ballycastle star Andrew McLean (Thunder Rods) and young Loughgall ace Matthew Weir (Junior Productions).

Conditions were horrendous as a fine field of Stock Rods set off for their prestigious Irish Championship race. After an early caution period after front row starter Marc Morrell was left stranded mid track with mechanical woes, Randalstown’s Sam McNeice set the pace out front. Kells driver Shane McMillan then found a way past but as they encountered heavy backmarking traffic he had Jonny Cardwell and Joe Largey breathing down his neck. Cardwell found the gap he was chasing down the back straight and took up the running, racing home to the Irish title ahead of Largey and Stevie McNiece.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a fine drive from Ballymena’s Adam McFall net him the win over Dan Shannon and Morrell, after early leader Victor McAfee hit problems.

The elite National Hot Rods division were contesting round four of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, with Ian McReynolds leading until halfway in the opening heat before National Champion Derek Martin surged past to take the win over Shane Murray. McReynolds then made good his escape early in the second heat and held on for a morale boosting victory, with Martin this time the runner up.
In the 35-lap final McReynolds held sway out front until the halfway stage, where Martin scythed past to move clear. A late caution period as they entered the final stages closed the placemen together and put a whole different complexion on the last ten laps. Martin kept his cool however, retaining control to take the win ahead of Murray and Glenn Bell.

Returnee Ethan Dilly set the pace in the opening Lightning Rods heat, before World Champion and renowned rainmaster Nigel Jackson powered around the outside to take an outstanding win over Ally Neill. Neill then just held Jackson off to claim the heat two honours on the sodden circuit.
The final saw another masterclass from Jackson, as he gave a demonstration of wet weather driving to annihilate the field to complete his double for the evening. Mark McCambridge and Neill chased his home in the podium places.

Another big field of Thunder Rods saw the budget racers produce some close, competitive action, with Clifford Gordon and Andrew McLean disputing the heat one lead before Mark McLaughlin managed to nip past to take the win. From then on it was all about McLean, as Andrew made the most of his generous yellow grading to take the wins in both heat two and the final. Following him home in the feature race were Sam Preston and McLaughlin.

The young guns in the Junior Productions coped admirably with the wet conditions all evening. Dungannon lad Aaron Dynes scored a clear win in the opening heat over Matthew Weir and Sam Percy. Irish Open Champion Jack Morrow then took the win in heat two after demoting the impressive Lacey Bevan late on. The final saw Dynes out front early on but he had no opposition to the flying Weir, as Matthew soared past to take the silverware in some style ahead of Percy and Morrow.

Garvagh’s Johnny McCloy was the toast of Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening as he scooped victory in the Grand Final of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Tyres Series. It was a very enjoyable night of oval racing action, with Ballymena driver James Goldie another big winner as he claimed victory in the King of Aghadowey title for the Thunder Rods for the third year in a row.
Young Leyton Hughes was once again victorious in the Ninja Karts, with fellow Antrim man Stephen McCready the winner in the all-action 1300 Stock Cars. Nutts Corner racer Mark Crawford rounded out the victors with a faultless hat-trick in the Stock Rods.

Eighteen 2.0 Hot Rods saw an opening heat win for recent returnee Kris Fitzpatrick, the Lisburn man racing home ahead of Michael Woods and Johnny McCloy in a great finish. Fitzpatrick repeated the feat in heat two for another win, with Davy Kernohan and Woods this time the place men in what was a frantic and action packed encounter.
The Grand Final of the Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series saw McCloy on pole position courtesy of his points tally across the series with Drew McKeown alongside. Johnny controlled the race right from the off, pulling clear to take a fantastic win ahead of Wood and Gary Butler. The top three all received new race tyres courtesy of the series sponsors, Hoosier UK.

A fantastic entry of 25 Thunder Rods arrived to do battle for the King of Aghadowey title, with Portadown’s Sam Preston the heat one winner ahead of Andrew McLean and James Goldie. Heat two saw Mark McLaughlin and Jason Darragh battle out front before they tangled and lost out, opening the way for Ricky Bradley to take the win over Chris Baird and Adam Graham.
Ballymena men Graham and Goldie shared the front row for the final, with Graham losing out early on as he ran into mechanical issues. That left Goldie holding sway out front and he came home to land the King of Aghadowey crown for the third year in succession. Dean Catherwood just held off McLean after a great battle for second, with Preston and Baird rounding out the top places.

As has been the norm of late, the 1300 Stock Cars were spectacular all evening with three superb races. The bumpers were put to full use, with no quarter given and certainly none expected from the drivers! Gareth Halliday led early on in heat one before Jon McQuillan forced his way past to take the win, with Chris Hamill in third. Heat two once again saw the sparks flying, with Halliday this time taking victory over Michael Logan and Hamill.
The final really was something else, with places and the lead exchanged constantly throughout the duration. Halliday, Logan and Thomas McCrory all had a spell out front each, some on multiple occasions, but in the final shuffle it was Stephen McCready who broke free to take the silverware ahead of McQuillan and Hamill after a simply superb meeting from the formula.

A number of visitors joined the locals for the Ninja Karts Stars of Tomorrow Challenge, with Christian Murray taking the heat one win over Eevie Ford and Riley Dawson-Stirling. Murray completed the double with another win in heat two, this time with Ford and Ben Hawe in the places in a race which featured a huge rollover for Charlie Johnston.
Johnston bravely returned to the grid for the final after some great pit work, as Hawe led the way until a mid race yellow flag closed the field together. Hawe tried his best to hang on, but World Champion Leyton Hughes swept past to take the win and the trophy ahead of Scottish visitor Ford and Ryan Berry.

The Stock Rods once again produced some fantastic racing, but the results were all about former Junior Productions star Mark Crawford. Mark claimed both heat wins to earn an upgrade to the blue grade for the final, leading home an impressive Mark Foster and Victor McAfee in both races as the star men failed to make any impact.
The upgrade should have made things more difficult for Crawford in the final, but the talented teenager raced clear of his challengers, then outside McAfee and inside leader Foster to complete his faultless hat-trick for the evening. Foster and McAfee again completed the top three.
